Members of the Hangzhou Asian Games baseball team began training at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on the 23rd. Except for Jang Hyun-seok (LA Dodgers), all players wore national team uniforms while missing from the KBO League schedule for a while. When they unite as “Team Korea,” the 10 clubs will continue to play the season.
The remaining schedule has increased, and the competition for second and fifth place is fierce. Even so, the prevailing view was that the national team’s transfer at the end of the season would be a big variable in the ranking battle. It’s actually a sign of that. And there are members of the national team who have to watch that quietly. His body is in the national team, but there is no way to prevent his mind from returning to his team when it is not practice time. 온라인카지노
I asked Choi Ji-min, a key member of the KIA bullpen, after training on the 23rd. “What do you think will happen to KIA when you are not there?” Choi Ji-min laughed and said, “KIA will do well.” It was a short but thick expectation or support. He said, “I will definitely go back after winning a gold medal.”
KIA is a club that unintentionally suffered a raw scratch in the process of calling up the national team. This is because Lee Eui-ri was dropped a day before the national team’s call-up due to the rather dubious application of principles. Choi Ji-min and outfielder Choi Won-jun are playing in the Asian Games for KIA.
In particular, KIA’s important task is to fill the void of Choi Ji-min. Lim Ki-young and Jeon Sang-hyun will have a bigger share, but the variable is that there is already physical and mental fatigue at the end of the season. Im Ki-young immediately hit the final two-run shot by Park Kyung-soo in the match against KT in Gwangju on the 24th. With Choi Ji-min out, it is a clear negative factor that the composition and operation of the must-win group cannot be more diverse.
Choi Won-jun’s absence is also expected to grow larger than expected. It’s not simply because Choi Won-joon has a good batting sense just before the national team call-up. Choi Hyung-woo, the spiritual support and pillar of KIA’s batting lineup, suffered a fracture of his left collarbone when he stepped on first base and fell after hitting a liner to second base against KT.
KIA’s batting lineup has lost Park Chan-ho, Na Sung-bum, and Choi Won-jun over the past two weeks, as well as Choi Hyung-woo. One-third of the main lineup was dropped due to injuries. In particular, the weakening of the central batting line is at a serious level. It finished three consecutive weekend home games against KT with one win and two losses, and is one game behind SSG in fifth place. Unlike Choi Ji-min’s support, the team’s situation is not good in many ways.
KIA will take a day off on the 25th and start seven consecutive away games in hell from the 26th, including four away games against NC and three away games against Kiwoom and SSG in the metropolitan area. In particular, the two consecutive games against fifth-place SSG are one-wood leg blood fights. It’s a very important watershed moment for the fifth-place leap.
